's daughter, understood conservatism or ronald reagan, the alcoholic son that grew up in middle america who actually believed, like i believe, like a lot of conservatives believe that if you want to help everybody, if you want to help the 100%, what you want to do is you want to fight hard for their individual free am do doms and unshackle them from regulations from high taxes, from a centralized state, and that's the best way to move forward. we can have a debate over whether that's right or wrong. the problem is, we didn't have that debate this time because mitt romney's view was such an insulated view of a guy who grew up rich and grew up in this insular world where his father ran car companies and was governor of michigan. >> this is a pivot point for the republican party. i think bobby jindal probably said it best. you have to turn -- you have to marry conservatism and pop y lyh populism. we helped the little guy because that's the america dream. it's not the opposite as far as entitlements and victims. that's a pivot point. and the republicans that get it are going to be part of a new
a brother, i don't envy him the position he is in. but i am also reminded of what ronald reagan taught us years ago, good polic makes good politics, john boehner needs to emphasis economic growth, is the way to get increed revenue. and there is two ways to -- two imperatives, dress down reduce, and discipline our government run among so there is confidence to grow in private sector then a tax system that accommodates that growth. you will dress a tax system of this country, from theoint of view of what is fair, have you taken the most simple minded way to address taxes. taxes are about raising the necessary revenue to fund the minimum, i i effective governmet that does interfere with growth of private sector, to to so in such a way as to encourage the maximum growth of the private sector is where you get maximum revenue. neil: we're at this cliff, possibility, republicans are under pressure, president said, i'm not budging, -- he left open some details, but he certainly want toss raise taxes on the rich. i guess they can decide whether they will resurrect old rate or closing loophole, how
. in the last 100 years, only four, right. so eisenhower, fdr, ronald reagan and barack obama. i think the idea that barack obama does not have a historic mandate when 44 men have been president and seven did what he did in two terms, he got 69 million votes the first time, 62 million votes the second time, i think he has a mandate. the things to be done that are great in this election happened to fall on the progressive side, in part because the republican party and conservatism has gone so far right things that used to be centrist, like environmentalism, which was a teddy roosevelt thing which even richard nixon was in favor of. >> john mccain. >> newt gingrich. >> these things have been now reclassed as liberal, right. the victories that the president has a chance to get which are historic, like on climate change, on immigration, are now progressive ideas because they've been left behind. >> it's now almost up to the republican party to grab a piece of that pie to say this is our victory too when in reality if they had done it earlier -- >> let's don't get in debate about the mandate. you ma
of the things i respected ronald reagan for. he had three lines in the sand. i think the president has his line in the sand. >> okay. meantime, time is dwindling for all of us. marty and bob thanks for being with us. time has ended. we'll be right back . >>> we're back now with stories making headlines across the nation. just days after a big win against alabama, some alarming news out of texas anm, thomas johnson is missing. the university's police department says johnson was last seen leaving his residence monday evening. he went to high school in dallas. police believe he may have traveled to that area. >> there is good news for college graduates in the coming year. expected to increase hiring of four year grads by about 5%. that is according to an annual survey by michigan state. demand for graduals with associate degrees is expected to increase by 40%. >> a new kind of adult treat is being whipped up at one bakery. these deep fried donuts are injected with jelly and liquor flavors. they are legal because they cook them. >> why is it taking so long and why didn't i think of that? that's gre
reagan and tip o'neill reforming social security. ronald reagan and tip o'neill doing the last comprehensive tax reform. bill clinton and a republican congress doing a welfare reform and actually balancing the budget. so we look forward to making this divided government productive for the american people, and we have, of course, as everyone well knows, a lot of challenges here at the end of the year. i'll be meeting with the president and the other leadership on friday to talk about the way forward, and we lookford to being part of the solution to -- look forward to being part of the solution to these significant problems. i'll send it over to our new minority whip, senator cornyn of texas. >> thanks, mitch. it's an honor to be elected by my colleagues to serve as the whip, the assistant leader on the republican side. as leader mcconnell has said, we have a lot of very difficult work to do, but we are committed to working with our colleagues across the aisle to solving the nation's urgent problems. we know what those are in the lame duck and we know what those are going forward
of the money here, but to be the big problems have been the trade agreements, starting with ronald reagan, the outsourcing of our jobs. there are a lot of people trying to live and $10 an hour while they are getting social security, medicare, taking out of their money, and then they are told by people like paul ryan and mitt romney that that is an entitlement. to me, that is like more of a ponzi scheme if they take that away. getting back to the elephant in the room, until we start talking about structurally change in this country beyond fighting over taxes -- you can fight over moving around the chairs on the titanic, but what really needs to be done is we need to repeal the trade agreement, look at taxing goods from china, and we need to get jobs back into this country, manufacturing jobs with wages people can live on and pressure for wages to go up. right now, the pressure is for wages to go down. you are fighting over what is less of the money coming in. host: let's go to the congressman. guest: this is an important issue that was fought over in the campaign. we need to support manufa
